Call for papers: Global Musicology – Global Music History. Virtual Conference.
25–27 January 2022

We seek to interrogate ‘global music history’ as both a field and methodology against the geopolitical realities of a ‘global musicology’. We invite papers that engage with the rich potential of ‘global music history’ within, adjacent to, and/or against ‘global musicology’.

We solicit proposals in the following areas, although the list is indicative rather than exhaustive. We particularly welcome perspectives from outside of the Euro-American West that presently dominates the music academy.

• The act and politics of labelling
• Practice
• Case studies

Keynote Speaker: Daniel K. L. Chua (Professor and Chair of Music, University of Hong Kong; President, International Musicological Society)

The submission deadline for individual papers, forums, roundtables, workshops is 1 July 2021. Please send all submissions and enquiries to GlobalMusicology -at-

In recognition of the geopolitical realities with which this conference seeks to engage, we will be holding the event on Zoom over three half days in an attempt to reach as many time zones as possible. We strongly encourage World Englishes to other the English language and to ‘make audible the imperial power sewn into the language.’ (Hong, 2020)
